Poetry is not the first choice of many when it comes to the genres of literature. Poetry seems hard to understand and so many overlook it. If one would be given a project to read or write, poetry is not the first one to be picked. Unless someone already liked it and have an understanding of it. But if one person has less idea how a poem can be easily understood, they can also pick it. There are many poems that have been written already and there are the popular ones.
Poetry also deals with many aspects of the life of people. It can express emotions and could let you have empathy. It can also teach you about the history and the things that one person dreams of and how it was achieved. There are various topics and so you can pick also what you want. If you had not tried poetry then you can start to also read it and you can come to understand that it is not that hard as it seems. Others have the taught that they should have the perfect interpretation of a poem so that makes it hard for them.
But poetry is not at all like that because one poem can have multiple interpretations. So whatever you have understood on it, be confident to share it. Also, poems are not just the ones that are perfectly in rhyme together but there are also the free verses. Anyone can find one poem appealing but others may not. It just depends on the person.
